“Like a beautiful castle park, the Ptuj golf course stretches over more than 50 ha of greens just below the Ptuj Castle. The 18-hole course surprises guests with its diverse terrain, and the high number of water obstacles on the Studenčnica stream and the two lakes. Golf lovers will always remember the 14th hole, which requires a spectacular swing that will carry the ball to an island.”

The five-meter tall monolith is still standing where it was raised by the Romans. In the middle ages the monument, ornamented with scenes from the myth of Orpheus, was used as a pillory.”
